The orginal was better

Post by ZX_Steve »

Seemed like a nice idea for a thread.. Modern products 'stealing' the name of 'much better' Spectrum related Products.

Sphero's Specdrum...

I used to deal with these things in a previous job:

(I'm guessing there are heaps of things named "microdrive").

The Interface 2? Not nearly as useful as the original.

I think this one is an exception in the thread... the original was not much better... :roll:

OK. It's missing an r but it could pass at a glance.

That looks like an advanced lawnmower.

I have wondered that about Citroen cars. Certainly a coincidence they have a C5 and ZX models.

Kawasaki liked the ring of "ZX" too, for all of their flagship sports bikes.

Still think of exploding fist every time I hear "ZX ninja".

Are you looking to go back to continental Europe, once YOU KNOW WHAT is all over, some time around the end of 2025? You are? I've found you somewhere to stay:

QL Hotels, which even have their own QLUB.

The only problem is, the bed hangs half way out the window, one of the windows is coloured red, and you've got to book at least a month in advance. Still, plenty of time to plan your visit!
